Touré Neblett does not think he plays the race card.

He doesn’t even think there really is a race card, it’s a figment of the vivid White imagination:

Playing the race card does not depend on the race of the speaker. It happens when someone, like Touré, falsely accuses Mitt Romney of trying to stir up racism:

Or when someone, like Touré, falsely pretends that issues of constitutional rights are motivated by racial animus:

Touré Neblett on the Auroroa Shooting – “But so much of this issue, I think comes down to, ‘Let’s make sure law abiding white people have access to guns and make sure that black criminals are not,’” MSNBC’s Toure said on “The Cycle” today.”

Or when people, like Touré, claim that opposition to Susan Rice is based on her race rather than her policies and conduct, even though the people he is accusing voted for and supported two previous nominees who were black:

The Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers appears to have had it with MSNBC host Touré. On Friday, Powers took to her Twitter account to insist that Touré clarify his often repeated accusation that Congressional Republicans opposed to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice replacing Sec. Hillary Clinton as the next Secretary of State are motivated by antipathy towards her race and/or gender.

On Tuesday, Powers caught wind of comments made by Touré on MSNBC’s The Cycle, where he savagely attacked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for his vocal opposition to Rice’s potential nomination to replace Sec. Clinton. Touré called McCain “bitter” over his 2008 loss to President Obama and said that the optics of white, Republican men attacking a black woman were terrible for his party.

[McCain] also gave us the horrible optics of he and Lindsey Graham as old, white, establishment folks wrongly and repeatedly attacking a much younger black woman moments after an election in which blacks and women went strongly blue. Looks like the GOP is already laying the foundation for losing in 2016.

Powers read the article and asked Touré where Sen. McCain’s misogyny and racial prejudice were when he confirmed the black, female former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice.

It’s not real complicated. Now, for example, if someone claimed that opposition to Mitt Romney was motivated by anti-White racism, without any factual basis other than the opposition, that would be the race card.

But that card, if it gets played, gets played rarely.

Touré knows that. Touré is not dumb. Touré just plays dumb when it comes to the race card.
